Storyline

George (Ken Finkleman) is stunned when Claire (Lauren Lee Smith) announces her intention to convert to Judaism. Worse, he discovers she's been meeting with his Rabbi to discuss the process. Since he defines his own Jewishness as closer to neurosis than religion, he admires her agnostic upbringing void of guilt, war and negative associations. But she's in pursuit of a more spiritual life and won't be assuaged. Meanwhile, Erica (Ieva Lucs) the nanny is disgusted with George for bringing salami into her all-organic household. Unbeknownst to her or Claire, the salami is not only his guilty treat, but also secret salvation to calm and befriend Bruno, the Rottweiler. He gleefully restocks his supply at the butcher when he picks up a side of beef for a determined Claire to make brisket. After conferring with Doug, (Jason Weinberg) who agrees that Claire's conversion is a bad idea, George is even more convinced that the success of their relationship depends on their differences of faith. ...
